On the Pier

You are standing at the end of the pier, watching the water ebb and flow along the long shoreline. The motion of the water is soothing, almost mesmerizing.

You find yourself lost in your imaginings. Your body sways unconsciously to the rhythm of the pulsing water. Your skin tingles and the brush of the breeze along your exposed skin gives you chills. You close your eyes as the sensations heighten.

The water is moving faster now. Its waves crash onto the rocks below. Your stomach tightens and you feel your heart racing. Your lips part as your breath shallows. Your hand grips the metal railing as the mist sprays upon you.

When you open your eyes, you are damp and breathless.

Where had your imagination taken you while you were standing on the pier?
